Hi All,

Perhaps it might be worth looking at the GPLed Java compiler called
"Jasmin"; It provides some sort of JVM Assembly language format,
which could probably become one of the FPC's output formats,
pretty much like it already does using the GAS. You could just treat
it like any other cpu.

In my opinion targeting Java instead of .NET would mean far greater
portability, since already there are JVMs for many systems. Besides that it
would be very fun to write Java Applets in Free Pascal ;-)
And eventually you could support .NET when it becomes widely available.

You can find "Jasmin" pages at http://cat.nyu.edu/meyer/jasmin
